Wild Garlic Ramp Pesto

Beautiful spring weather where finally all of the herbs are starting to grow, will give us a great option of going into the woods, pick Wild garlic or Ramp as somebody calls it and make a perfectly tasty Keto Wild Garlic Ramp Pesto, that will last for a long time in your fridge and can be added to almost anything.

Spring is here, the sun is shining finally a bit longer and stronger, and the weather is getting more pleasant.

Wild Garlic Pesto

And that is the best time for weekends trip into the woods. At the beginning of April, a wild garlic or a ramp is starting to grow all over. And you do not need to travel far for it. We normally go just into the outskirts of our town, into a big park and garlic is everywhere. Do not forget to take a big bags, because once you will start picking, you would not know when to stop. Try also Wild Garlic Chips.

The best time to pick ramp or wild garlic is at the complete start of the season when the leaves are still young and fresh. The second reason is, that at the beginning of April when the wild garlic starts growing you would have no problem mixing it with Lilly of the Valey, which is pretty dangerous to our body. Lots of people mix those 2 leaves up, but even though they do look a bit similar, wild garlic has got a strong smell of garlic, which cannot be missed. And as I wrote, if you go at the beginning Lilly of the Valey does not grow as yet.

Wild garlic ramp pesto is very easy to make and once you are done, you can enjoy the wild garlic throughout the whole year.

I keep it in the fridge and use it whenever needed. We add it to salads, make spreads for bread, soups, marinate meat, use it on pasta. The choice is really wide. Lots of people add pine nuts or any other nuts, but since we use nuts almost in everything, I like it pure, just with olive oil and a bit of salt.
